Hanoi (VNA)Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has approved a master plan for the development of Tan Trao national tourist site in the northern province of Tuyen Quang to 2030, aiming to draw about 1.5 million visitors, including 2,000 foreigners, to the site in 2025.

The site targets 2 million visitors in 2030, including 35,000 foreigners. Revenue from tourism at the site is expected to exceed 600 billion VND in 2025 and 1.65 trillion VND in 2030.

Tan Trao national tourist side covers five communes in Son Duong district and one in Yen Son district. Under the plan, its core area of 25,000 hectares will be developed.

Targeted foreign markets include China, Japan, Taiwan (China) and the Republic of Korea, along with Southeast Asian countries such as Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines, as well as foreigners living in Vietnam.

The plan focuses on key products such as tours exploring the history of the site, educating on its patriotic tradition and ecotourism.

The plan will expand infrastructure for tourism by increasing accommodations to 500 rooms in 2025 and 1,000 in 2030 to at least three-star standards, while developing restaurants, homestay facilities, entertainment and sport centres and parks.

Capital for the plan will be sourced from the State budget, the fund for supporting tourism development and capital mobilised from organisations, enterprises and other sources.

Tan Trao, known as Vietnam’s revolutionary cradle, was once the home of President Ho Chi Minh and Party central agencies in the period before the success of the August Revolution and in the resistance war against the French. It is the venue of many historic events leading up to the August Revolution victory, including the Congress of People’s Representatives chaired by President Ho Chi Minh on August 16, 1945 to decide the destiny of the nation.-VNA
